We hope Vin is recovered enough to attend this ceremony next month. From a press release:
DISTINGUISHED ALUMNUS AWARD TO BE PRESENTED IN NOVEMBER
LUBBOCK, Texas — The National College Baseball Hall of Fame will honor the post-college baseball accomplishments of one of baseball’s greatest broadcasters with the George H.W. Bush Distinguished Alumnus Award.
The Hall of Fame will honor Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully at 5 p.m. PST on Nov. 8 at the Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles.
The award is named after its inaugural recipient, George H.W. Bush, who played at Yale from 1946 to 1948 and eventually was elected the 41st President of the United States. [...]
Scully was an outfielder at Fordham in the late 1940s, and even played in a game against Bush’s Yale team in April 1947. He began his broadcasting career while a student and shortly thereafter was offered the opportunity to join the then-Brooklyn Dodgers’ broadcasting booth.
Congratulations, Vin — get well so you can enjoy this event!
